For the first time since Bob Marley’s death, the musicians who comprised The Wailers have reunited. Beginning in 1974, Bob Marley and The Wailers famously brought reggae music from the streets of Jamaica to the rest of the world through albums such as Natty Dread, Rastaman Vibration, Exodus, Kaya, Survival and Uprising. Songs such as “War,” “No Woman, No Cry,” “Lively Up Yourself” “Jamming,” “One Love,” and more are the creative outpourings of the legendary alchemy of these artists, who provided the backbone for New York Times to name Bob Marley the most significant musician of the century. The historic impact of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ music during this time period from 1974 to 1981 caused Rolling Stone to name Bob Marley and The Wailers “Band of the Year” (1976); Exodus to be declared “Best Album of the Century” by Time Magazine (1999); and ”One Love” honored as “Song of the Millennium” by the BBC (1999).  

Now steered by famed bassist and founder Aston “Family Man” Barrett, The Wailers reunion brings the revolutionary sound and message back to life. Members are: Aston “Family Man” Barrett (1970 – 1981, bass); Junior Marvin (1977 – 1981, guitar); Tyrone Downie (1974 – 1981, keys); Wya Lindo (1973 – 1981, keys); and Donald Kinsey (1975 – 1976, guitar). These old-school members welcome the new-generation talent of Aston Barrett Jr. on drums (Family Man’s son, and nephew of drummer Carlton “Carly” Barrett, Wailers co-founder 1970 - 1981) and Shema Mc Gregor on backup vocals (vocalist Judy Mowatt’s daughter, I-Three original 1974 – 1981).
